Simple Nivo Slider

"The world's most awesome jQuery slider" by Gilbert Pellegrom, made easily available for WordPress.

Can I make the link for a particular slide take me to a non-default page or another site?

You can specify a custom link, using the simple_nivo_link custom field on the slide post.

Can the link for a particular slide be disabled completely?

Yes, use none as the value for the simple_nivo_link custom field on the slide post.

Will Simple Nivo Slider work with post-link plugins like "Page Links To"?

Most likely, yes.

I'd like to put captions on some of my slides, is that possible?

You can specify a caption for a slide, using the simple_nivo_caption custom field on the slide post.

How do I reset all Simple Nivo Slider options to defaults?

Uninstalling the plugin, removes all settings as well. Re-installing, will return all options to their default values.

The slider is not behaving as expected (no effects, controls not working etc)

If you have other Nivo based slider plugins installed, try to deactivate them and see if that helps. Loading multiple instances (and even versions) of the same jQuery function, can yield unpredictable results.

I have some suggestions or found a bug in the plugin. Can I contact You with info?

Please do. I can't make too many promises up front, but I promise I'll check my mail. You'll find my mail address in the Contact section.
